Basket Case (1982) trivia:
When Duane checks into the Hotel Broslin, he takes out a wad of cash. According to the director, Frank Henenlotter, this was the entire budget of the film.
Most of the credits at the end of the film are fake. The crew was so small, they'd rather repeat create new names than use the same names over and over.
One of the death scenes was so disturbing, the crew walked out of the production. This would happen again in Frank Henenlotter's next film, Brain Damage.
In addition to working the puppet of the brother, Kevin Van Hentenryck also performed the voice of the mutant twin.
